This is a SONG, just to get that out of the way. Also, it's an acoustic/folky style, if that helps anything.

I lie.
Not compulsively.
Just enough to get you
to listen to me.

I lie.
Horizontally.
On this concrete slab
Of mediocrity.

And I've felt cold
Felt the chill inside my bones
While I've roamed this hollow home
Yeah I've felt cold.

And I know fear.
Listened to my heart slow
Heard the screams below
Yeah I know fear.

In the end,
I'm still a coward fleeing truth
Shaking purpose off because
I'm so tangled up by youth.
No one ever knows if you're gonna make it
Until you're in the clear.
Yeah I know fear.
